Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 PC and use Microsoft XP on this PC. I know I should bakup all my files to CD's or DVD's but when I click on Programs and go to Accessories / System tools, I do not see a Backup listed to use. A lot of Dells's backup that way. Is there another way for me to burn CD's on all my C Drive for a backup?

You can just click and drag individual file or folders to your cd or dvd and windows will burn (copy) them. What I normally do is I check the size of the items that I want to copy so I'll know exactly how many disks (cd or dvd) i will need. Have fun!

Need xp download for usb boot


Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

How do i get my dell dimension 3100 to play dvd's and dvd-r's sonic cineplayer doesn't want to do anything for me


Try the Open Source VLC player software (from videolan)

If still no luck, chances are it's your DVD drive (you do know you only get 3 changes of 'Region Code' before it locks up ?)

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive


With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

How do I return our Dimension 5100 Dell Desktop back to it's original state? Lost the recovery CD.


Have you tried restoring your operating system to a previous restore point?
To do this click on start- all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. Then choose a date from the calendar which corresponds to a time before you began to experience problems on your PC. Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your PC to its original state.
Note that a system restore will remove any programs which were installed AFTER the selected restore point date.
Hope this helps.

Cd/dvd burner too slow


It may just be that that is the speed of your drive.  See if it says on the drive how fast it is.  If it is too slow, then you may want to consider getting a newer, faster drive.
